Jumbo is an active orangutan who loves nothing more than to play on ropes or the tyre swing. Baby Cinta adores Jumbo and will often approach him for a cuddle or play.
Jumbo is an active orangutan who loves nothing more than to play on ropes or the tyre swing. Baby Cinta adores Jumbo and will often approach him for a cuddle or play. He grudgingly puts up with this attention - although we all think he secretly enjoys it! Besides learning to climb trees, Jumbo is also learning how to build sturdy nests.
Jumbo was sadly separated from his mother after hunting dogs scared her away in the forest. The trauma of losing his mother at such a young age is still evident, and Jumbo oftens wraps his arms around his body and hugs himself when he is surprised or scared.
Cheeky Jumbo likes to pull practical jokes on babysitters by tugging at the lanjung bags they carry and causing the fruit inside to spill out.

Every penny counts in protecting these wonderful creatures and their fragile environment... any amount that you choose to donate will be a huge help.
We work to save the orangutan by rescuing and rehabilitating them, with an ultimate goal of releasing them back to the forest where they will be safe from human development, poaching and farming.
